Sat April 26, 2014 - Back to the Trails!! Mountain Bike rides…continue! meet at Lincoln/Forbidden Drive trailhead parking area. The ride leaves at 10:00 am. Class C, 3-5/12-14mph, 25-30 miles, , …well this one is actually, a “combo” ride…we will again meet at Lincoln/Forbidden Drive trailhead parking area. The ride leaves at 10:00 am. This remains a Beginner/No Judgements ride - goal is to build into something more and we are still building! This is a No Drop ride so we will be looking for the friendliest trails possible but be prepared to know where your skills are in relation to terrain (and when you need to walk a section). We will start on the trails of Wissahickon but since the BCP Spring Kick-Off is happening on the same day, we will be cutting our “play” time in the dirt a bit short and then head down to the BCP Spring KickOff event [ http://phillybikeclub.org/newbcp/events/kickoff2014.html ]. We will have bathroom breaks (Valley Green Inn and elsewhere as needed). AND NOTE: After our time on the trail we return to the start point, you would not be obligated to join us for the ride down to the BCP KickOff event After the KickOff event I will lead the group back to MLK Drive or to the Art Musuem. Total mileage will be 25-30 miles. Muddy trail conditions or rain at 8:00 AM or an over 50% forecast for rain between 8:00am and noon cancels the ride. Check the web site for up-to-date information. Required: Mountain bike with knobby tires (please, no hybrids; your call for cyclocross bikes); a way to fix problems trailside (spare tube(s), pump, patches, multi-tool or allen wrench and chain tool); cash for snacks; trail permit; a sense of humor Optional but recommended
Cue sheets will not be available.
